Application Details

Applications from emerging Australian choreographers are now being called for this international opportunity.

The IYCP has been providing young choreographers with this invaluable artistic and cultural experience since 1999. Read about previous Australian participants’ experience here.

Closing date is 16 December 2023.

About the International Young Choreographer Project

The International Young Choreographer Project (IYCP) is held in southern Taiwan in July/August and is hosted by World Dance Alliance Asia–Pacific Taiwan chapter. A total of eight choreographers are chosen by WDA Asia Pacific (WDAAP) to attend.

Applicants are selected from a list of young choreographers recommended by World Dance Alliance (Asia Pacific, Americas and Europe) country chapters, based not only on their choreographic work, but also on their ability to meet the challenges of working in a foreign country with unfamiliar dancers and culture, and their potential as a significant contributor to dance in the future.

The selected choreographers work with selected dancers from Taiwan. The three-week process of developing new works with local Taiwanese dancers concludes with two performances. The program highlights the diversity of dance in both styles and cultures, and how local and international choreographers perceive their daily lives and the world.

Participants must fund their own travel to Taiwan. However, an honorarium of US$800 for WDAAP choreographers is included, plus accommodation, local transportation, dancers, studios, publicity, production and office assistance.

Australian applicants must be members of their local state Ausdance network.
